The Page of Swords Upright
Some people in society are in a sleepwalking state of mind. They have no ambition to do something greater with their life. They’re ‘dead’ at 25 but don’t get buried until 75.
Excuse us for the initial morbid nature of this tarot card reading. What follows is vibrancy! We promise. 🙂
To point is: We’re living in the very best time to accumulate new skills and life experiences. There is an abundance of growth and opportunities surrounding us here in this very moment.
While some are sleepwalking, others are busy upskilling. They know the world is changing rapidly. New technologies and information is coming to the surface at lightning speed. There is no time to rest! We must adapt here and this begins with our thirst for knowledge acquisition.
The Page of Swords Upright is a ‘Yes’ tarot card. In a love reading, it means curiosity towards others in the Rider-Waite tarot deck.
This man is young and standing with a sword. We feel his youthful and dynamic energy at play. He is learning a new skill and acquiring great talents that will serve him well in the future.
His mind is open to new ideas and thought processes. While clouds surround him, his head isn’t ‘in the clouds’ because his feet are firmly planted on the ground. Being high in the sky gives him the perspective of where his knowledge will take him far into the future.
Clearly he is very passionate about new frontiers of inner self and outer world discovery. There is no limitations here. No excuses. He seeks to win in life and the only way is to keep practicing his skill and move forward.
New ideas and perspective
It doesn’t matter how old we are, we always have new ideas and enthusiasm for a change. Charting a plan for the future is easy once you have the skills, knowledge and know-how to carry your way forward.
There is so much energy to be found in tackling a new project. You’ll need to initially acquire the right knowledge so you can see this through to completion. While others will soon become distracted, you’ll need to focus intensely and often for several years.
Be warned! There is a lot of information out there surrounding the same topic. By choosing the right mentor and the right community, you can better arm yourself for the ascension up this mountain. This is a time to explore new concepts and find the right knowledge holders, not to attain mastery in 5 minutes.
Mistakes are learning opportunities
You will make mistakes along the way but don’t get discouraged. The Page of Swords upright depicts a younger man who has made his fair share of mistakes. What is he doing now? He is still practising! He will get better over time.
Curiosity might kill a cat, but it also creates heroes. It takes someone from not knowing about a particular topic to, within a few years, of sheer mastery – provided they stick to it. Indeed there are many opportunities around and often people find the next ‘shiny object’ at the first sign of failure.
Don’t be discouraged by mistakes. The judgement from others means nothing tangibly. You started and they didn’t! If you’re committed to the process, you’ll find new heights of personal knowledge and experience to share with others.
The first step
You must seek out those who have walked the path before. They might be spiritual authors, philanthropists or business authors. If they have done it, and they’ve documented it…then so can you!
You’ll find the most knowledgable and caring people give everything they possibly can. They simply want to help and share with others precisely how to win on the journey. You can spot them right away because their enthusiasm is infectious!
Once you catch their bug, you won’t want to leave. Clearly they have results. They have walked the path and made mistakes. They are raw, open and transparent on what it truly takes to win in the world today.
It’s time for you to step forward. Start acquiring the knowledge around the topics which make you curious. If you’re a bookworm, then this becomes inheritely easier! Head into your local bookstore and head into the new age or self help section. There are dozens of authors who share their lessons learned and powerful mantras for success.
The path for you isn’t easy. You will be challenged. Simply learning the skills is hard enough. Taking action on them later is even harder.
Quitting and complaining will be easy! Indeed many people take this route. For you, our friend, start focusing on the things which really matter to you in the next few years.
You’re hungry for knowledge and it’s time to start learning!
